Not sure why I haven’t been blogging much lately… Is it really that I don’t have much to say? As usual, I’ve been busy: waves of work, Spanish study, farewell parties, tango music, pub quiz (my team is getting worse—5th place last week!), tasty steak and empanadas and beer and curry (not more than two of those at once), an afternoon at the horse races (my horse came in 7th!), web stuff, my first couchsurfer, and more. Probably the most exciting/random thing that’s happened recently is getting two unsolicited emails, one from someone who found my work website and wants to hire me to edit a book, and the other from someone who found my blog and encouraged me to submit content to her website and/or a book she’s working on. Is it a complete coincidence that I just switched web hosts? I wonder if that has anything to do with how my sites come up in searches, etc. Anyway, the prospect of new work is exciting—I am also going to be helping to edit SAE’s magazine, though probably on a volunteer basis. And somehow, amidst all this work, I’m planning two getaways in the next month: one to Uruguay to renew my visa, the other to a yet-to-be-determined destination with my friend Carolynn.

    horse races, really? okay if your horse came in 7th then how many horses were racing? that’s great news about folks contacting you about more work.

    I think my horse came in 7th out of 10. It was my horse’s debut race, and I had high hopes! Oh well. In the same race, my friend’s horse won, with 25 to 1 odds, so she got 125 pesos back from her 5-peso bet!

    happy to hear of the new work prospects, sounds like fun. Wow, what a coincidence that your blog got picked up by someone right after you switched web hosts! I read an awesome book once that was basically this one girls blog about her desire to cook all the recipes in the Julia Child cookbook “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”. Maybe you could publish a blog-book too!
